Even though Vladimir Putin crushes and kills the hopes and dreams of LGBTQ people in Russia and Ukraine, Donald Trump has nothing but praise for Putin’s “strong” leadership qualities. By keeping his mouth shut about Putin’s crimes against humanity, Trump is doing nothing but giving his approval to the man. But one advocacy group, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), will not sit quietly by and watch people get hurt with out speaking up. They’ve called out both men for their evil deeds, by projecting messages on the building where Putin and Trump are going to meet tomorrow.

The HRC released a statement that said that over 100 people have been rounded up, tortured and abused, and over 20 over them have been killed in the process. As protesters gathered outside the palace where Trump and Putin are going to meet, the HRC’s director, Ty Cobb, told them
‘Trump has unconscionably turned a blind eye to some of the worst anti-LGBTQ atrocities in a generation, including monstrous attacks on gay and bisexual men in Chechnya.’
‘HRC is here in Helsinki to demand Donald Trump end his deafening silence, publicly condemn these Chechen crimes against humanity, and call on Putin to investigate and bring the perpetrators to justice.’
Both of our houses of Congress have condemned the brutal attacks on LGBTQ members in and around Russia, and they’ve criticized Trump for remaining silent. His silence is doing nothing but emboldening Putin to keep these attacks up. Of course, Trump would never do anything to make his role model Putin angry. No Trump will bow down like Putin’s little lap-dog, because it’s obvious that Putin has something on him.
Trump has been overseas this week weakening America every chance he gets. He’s publicly called the E.U. our foes, weakened NATO, and has said nothing but nice things about Putin and Russia. Trump has ruined our country in the eyes of the world. Donald Trump is a traitor and a disgrace to this nation.
